Hundreds attend funeral for firefighter

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A memorial service for the fiance of a Chesterfield firefighter killed in a motorcycle crash on I-95 is scheduled for Wednesday, August 24.

Hundreds said final goodbye's Tuesday to 31-year-old Christopher Davidson.

He was a volunteer Chesterfield firefighter.

Davidson and his fiance Wendy Jones died in a motorcycle crash last week.

Trucks from Chesterfield Phillips' Station 13 led the procession in Petersburg Tuesday morning as fellow firefighters like Mike Ferguson paid their respects to their fallen comrade.

"Chris was like the wind," Ferguson said. "He was free and fun loving and always willing to get involved. Every call, if he wasn't working, you could count on him being there."

The memorial service for his fiance, Wendy Jones, will be held in her honor in Colonial Heights.
